I have been in the same boat with one of my clients where they split their site, and Yahoo replied via e-mail that the reason they chose not to add the second site was because they believed them both to be under the same COMPANY. I was a little furious that some Yahooligan had the nerve to make such a decision since the sites were entirely different, but they didn't list it. As for splitting up your site with regard to everyone else(non directory type services such as Yahoo) I say DEFINATELY. Many people don't know that submitting your site to some of the search engines with, and then without, the http:// or www. can get you the equiv. of multiple listings. So if you are willing to do the extra domain name, focus on getting a name that will get you ranked well with Yahoo, in other words- look at Yahoo, decide what two catagories you would like to be in, then look for a domain name that will put you right where you want to be. With just a little care, you can easily pull this whole thing off...even with Yahoo.
